Alma and Charter Schools

Alma can help charter schools get a holistic view of student learning, reduce busywork, support progressive educational approaches, and save money.

Charter schools have a unique opportunity to try new approaches to classroom instruction and explore innovative ways to improve student outcomes.

But no matter how resourceful they are, most charter schools face significant challenges, including exhausting schedules, scarce resources and high expectations from parents and the community.

At Alma, we understand the challenges charter schools face, and we believe a holistic student engagement platform can help.
